Easy Crab Cakes

Crab Cakes are some of the easiest fritters to make.  I know on my instagram I have talked about corn fritters before, and yes I love corn fritters – but there is something I love most about Crab Cakes.  For one, they take fewer ingredients and are way less of a hassle to make.  And my favorite part about them – they are so versatile!  Perfect for a summer afternoon with a fresh slaw or Remoulade sauce. Yum! 

I have created a post about different ways to eat Crab Cakes!  You can view it here. 

I also did an Instagram Live about it and you can watch that here. 

Food doesn’t have to be scary.  It doesn’t have to be intimidating.  I want you to have fun with my recipes and enjoy cooking for your family and your friends. 

I often say that food brings people to the table, but that it’s your job to invite them! Use this recipe as a starting place. Make crab cakes and then figure out what you are going to do with them. Salad. Dip. Quesadilla. Sliders.

You tell me! It is up to you! Just make them and invite people – because trust me, people will come! These crab cakes are too good not to come and enjoy them!
